This is sort of the idea behind solipsism, that we can't really be sure what is reality. It's the basis for Descartes saying "I think therefore I am". He's basically saying the only thing he knows for certain is that he exists, and in doing so admits that he doesn't even know what's real. It is more directly summed up in this quote by Zhuangzi who said "I dreamed I was a butterfly, flitting around in the sky; then I awoke. Now I wonder: Am I a man who dreamt of being a butterfly, or am I a butterfly dreaming that I am a man?"

Descartes' saying that you quote is only until first of several foundations of his philosophy. However, the weakest "truth" he posits is that God exists.

That would kill me so many times from the staircases, by a car accident, by someone trying to kill me with a pillow. That would make many of my apnea episodes a reality😓God that's scary!! I'm so glad suddenly that reality is (I believe) the reality.

Then I have a not so interesting dream, but dam my real life has so many ways of being.
